  2. 2. Monday, 02th to 8th Dec 2013 Editorial Arunachal is "integral and important part" of India: Pranab On one of the rare Presidential visits to this part of the country, incumbent Pranab Mukherjee on Friday asserted that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral and important part of the Northeast region of India and a core stake holder in country's 'Look East' foreign policy. In comments that will be read with interest in Beijing, which lays claim over parts of the state, he said no longer should this region be considered remote. "The Centre and the state government should together rapidly build the infrastructure linkages and connectivity with the rest of India that is required and this legislature and the people of Arunachal should extend every assistance possible to this venture," he said in his address to Arunachal Pradesh assembly. China, which has raised disputes regarding India's sovereignty over Arunachal Pradesh, has of late upped the ante by issuing stapled visas to residents of the state in a bid to buttress its claim. But the visits by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh some years ago and the President now are seen as an attempt by India to send a clear message to China that India has an unassailable sovereignty over the state. Centre to frame guidelines to regulate TV contents The Supreme Court asked three central ministries and others including Press Council of India (PCI) to respond to a PIL seeking framing of guidelines to regulate contents of television channels. A bench of Chief Justice P Sathasivam and Justice Ranjan Gogoi on Friday issued notices to ministries of Information and Broadcasting, Law and Justice and Communications & Information Technology. Besides them, PCI, Election Commission, News Broadcasters Association, Indian Broadcasting Foundation and Advertising Standards Council of India have also been asked to respond to the PIL which has been filed by Hindu Janjagruti Samiti, a registered public charitable trust, through its Mumbai-based lawyer Rajeev K Panday. The plea also said the court should declare that a 2008 government order will not preclude an authorised officer under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act from initiating criminal prosecution against a channel in case of violation of provisions of the Act. It alleged that there is "complete absence" of regulatory authority for TV Channels. The petition raises a substantial question of public importance and public interest relating to the necessity of an effective regulation of electronic media in matters involving public morality, public decorum, social tranquillity and public order "There is no regulatory body for TV channels which is comparable with Press Council of India that regulates the print media. Though TV channels are audio-visual media, there is no censorship on their contents. In other words, a film that cannot be released without censor certificate can straightaway be released on a TV channel," the PIL said. The PIL said the so-called self-regulation by electronic media has proved to be "completely ineffective" as the "self-regulating bodies" are private companies and are under control of the media houses. "The private bodies have a limited power of imposing fine upto Rs one lakh which goes into their own kitty. There is no compensation to victim of media abuse. There is also no control of government over these bodies. These bodies are not accountable to people as they are not organs of the state," it said. The law relating to emergency blocking of objectionable website without prior notice as contained in the Information Technology (Procedure and Safeguards for blocking for access of information by public) Rules, 2009 is much more rigorous as compared to TV channels for which there is no law for emergency blocking. hough objectionable programme on TV channel can do more harm than an objectionable website, there is no rigorous law to curb objectionable content of a TV channel. The belated action on behalf of the Government authorities against erring channels shows that the non-serious attitude of the Centre. "...the Central Government is also nonserious about exercising its powers with reference to controlling channels by suspension and revocation of license. This has emboldened the channels to violate the programme code in a blatant manner and has given rise to malpractices such as 'Paid News' "Extortion by blackmail", "Character Assassination for TRP" and so on," it said. INDIA LOCAL PAGE 2 Food preservation by radiation processing Food is vital for human existence. Conservation and preservation of food is essential for food security and it provides economic stability and self-reliance to a nation. The need to preserve food has been felt by mankind since time immemorial. The seasonal nature of production, long distances between production and consumption centres and rising gap between demand and supply have made this need even more relevant today. The hot and humid climate of a country like India is quite favourable for growth of numerous insects and microorganisms RAHUL TULI that destroy stored crops and cause spoilage of food every year. Spoilage can also occur due to chemical and physiological changes in stored foods. Sea-foods, meat and poultry may carry harmful microbes and parasitic organisms that cause illnesses associated with their consumption. As in other parts of the world, India has also vation through radiation. Radiation processing of food involves exposure of food to short wave radiation energy to achieve a specific purpose such as extension of shelf-life, insect The hot and humid climate of a country like India is quite favourable for growth of numerous insects and microorganisms that destroy stored crops and cause spoilage of food every year.

India has also practiced various methods of food preservation such as sun drying, pickling and fermentation which were supplemented with more energy consuming techniques such as refrigeration, freezing and canning. practiced various methods of food preservation such as sun drying, pickling and fermentation which were supplemented with more energy consuming techniques such as refrigeration, freezing and canning. Each of these methods has its merits and limitations. Man has always been in the search for newer methods to preserve foods with least change in sensory qualities. Radiation processing of food is one of the latest methods developed for this purpose. Food Technology Division (FTD) of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) is involved in the research on food preser- post-harvest losses and use of chemical fumigants. Expertise and know-how for designing, fabrication and commissioning of irradiators is available in the country with the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) and BARC. In India commercial food irradiation could be carried out in a facility licensed by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB). The DAE has set up two technology demonstration units in India. The Radiation Processing Plant at Vashi, Navi Mumbai, mainly meant for treatment of spices, dry vegetable seasonings like onion flakes, and pet foods, is being operated by the Board of Radiation & Isotope Technology (BRIT). KRUSHAK (Krushi Utpadan Sanrakshan Kendra), parasites. In comparison with heat or chemical treatment, irradiation is considered a more effective and appropriate technology to destroy food borne pathogens. It offers a number of advantages to producers, processors, retailers and consumers. Though irradiation alone cannot solve all the problems of food preservation, it can play an important role in reducing Lasalgaon, was set up in 2002 by BARC, to demonstrate low dose applications of radiation such as control of sprouting, insect disinfestations, and quarantine treatment. KRUSHAK became the first Cobalt-60 gamma irradiation facility in the world, outside US, to be certified by USDA-APHIS for phytosanitary treatment enabling export of mango from India to the US in 2007 after a gap of 18 years. The microbiological, nutritional and chemical aspects of radiation-processed foods have been studied in detail around the world. None of these studies have indicated any adverse effects of radiation on food quality.

PAGE 3 CBI seizes gold worth Rs. 67 lakh, FDs from SBI officer's home Mumbai/New Delhi: CBI conducted searches at the Mumbai residence of SBI Deputy MD Shyamal Acharya and claimed to have seized gold and jewellery worth Rs. 67 lakh after he and others were booked by the agency in a graft case related to disbursal of a loan of over Rs. 400 crore. CBI's Economic Offences Wing in Mumbai had registered a case against Mr Acharya who is also the head of Mid-Corporate wing of the Bank, former SBI official K K Kumarah and Chairman of Worlds Window Group Piyoosh Goyal for alleged graft. Mr Kumarah was arrested in the case yesterday. The agency said that Mr Goyal had allegedly applied for over Rs. 400 crore of corporate loan from SBI but only Rs. 75 crore was approved. Mr Kumarah, who had joined Worlds Window Group after leaving SBI as an advisor, allegedly tried to get loans cleared for the company using his contacts in the bank, the agency said. CBI said an arrangement was reached between Mr Kumarah and Mr Goyal under which he was to get Rs. 25 lakh for his services and Rs. 15 lakh for Mr Acharya. Mr Kumarah allegedly purchased two high-end watches, Rolex and Omega brands, worth about Rs. 7.75 lakh to be given to Mr Acharya for his alleged favours, they said.

Canada wanted to dispose of the large sixstorey building in Grosvenor Square because it plans to consolidate all diplomatic INDIA LOCAL activities in another official Canadian property on Trafalgar Square. Canada was advised by Savills PLC. Foreign embassies are abandoning London's premier addresses such as Mayfair and Kensington as the world of diplomacy changes in the face of security risks and new technology.

Man reportedly electrocuted while using iPhone 4S with third-party charger Mumbai (AU News network) :In a rare but not entirely unprecedented incident, a man in Thailand was reportedly declared dead after being electrocuted while using his Apple iPhone 4S when it was charging. It's worth pointing out that the charger was found to be third-party one, and not the original Apple-supplied charger. The 28-year old man from Chanthaburi province was found dead in his room with burn marks across the body and hand. The report claims that the man was holding his iPhone 4S at the time of death and that the smartphone was hooked to a power outlet. While the exact cause of death has not been ascertained, the report speculates that the man might have been talking on the smartphone while charging it, and that the charger could have overheated resulting in the electrocution. In a similar incident, a Chinese woman was killed by an electric shock when answering a call on her iPhone 5 while it was charging in July this year. Soon after, Apple announced a probe looking into the death of the woman. Previously, an Apple iPhone 5 even exploded during phone call in Thailand. To counter such incidents involving unauthorised after-market accessories, Apple had in August announced a trade-in program for third-party chargers, where people with counterfeit or third-party power adaptors could swap them for certified Apple models for the local equivalent of $10. Samsung has not been far from such incidents as well, as the company's 2013 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4 reportedly exploded and burned down a house in Hong Kong.
  4. 4. Monday, 02th to 8th Dec 2013 INDIA LOCAL PAGE 4 'Bullett Raja' review: Saif Ali Khan dazzles in this Dhulia flick As a Sometimes you are left wondering why the potential of a star is not used to its full extent more often. Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Bullett Raja' is a good example of what Saif Ali Khan is actually capable of, reminding you of ‘Langda Tyagi’ from ‘Omkara’. Yet it is not a repeat of the old act. This rustic act of Saif Ali Khan makes you want more. Saif plays Raja Mishra, a trigger happy small town boy who turns into a fully fledged gangster as he gets entangled in a shootout. The story then plots his and his friend Rudra’s (played by Jimmy Shergill) journey in the politics and violence of Uttar Pradesh. Raja and Rudra then make their way up into main stream politics while playing henchmen for the leading opposition party leader. The movie is action packed and the director does not try and keep it understated to attract crowds. He does not try to pull off ‘Dabangg’ style stunts either. The hair raising action sequences are fantastically paced and the wit and humour used to set off the scenes remind you why Dhulia is a genius. The characters of Raja and Rudra make compelling anti heroes. They are loyal, romantic, witty, macho, strong and exude panache in every move. The movie has an great cast ensemble. Gulshan Grover and Raj Babbar in negative characters make you nostalgic for their performances in the 90s. Even Chunky Pandey, who plays a negative cameo in the first half is really commendable. Jimmy as usual makes you think why he is so underused in Bollywood and why more directors don’t take him on board. He seems to be one of Tigmanshu’s favourite actors – with a splendid performance in this movie, the director is not far off the mark. Sonakshi Sinha plays her 'typical' Bollywood heroine role, and does not have much to contribute. Even the romantic angle given to the movie is wasteful. Ravi Kishen plays a character with a lot of potential in the movie and could have been utilised better. A special mention should go to Vidyut Jamwal. If after Akshay Kumar there is dearth of a true action hero in Bollywood; Vidyut is the answer. Even though he comes onscreen only for the last 45 minutes or so, he delivers a power packed performance and the jaw dropping stunts which he has choreographed and executed himself are breath taking. Added to this his good looks and a well toned body would ensure his female fan following only growing with more projects. The movie is all about the refreshingly original screenplay and the tight direction. The dialogues (written by Tigmanshu himself) are crisp and witty and don’t fizzle out at any part of the movie. They are not over done either. Some of them got wolf whistles as the audience cheered the actors for some more. “Brahman bhukha toh Sudama, samjha toh Chanakya aor rutha toh Ravaan.” (When a Brahmin is hungry, he is Sudama; when he understands, he is Chanakya; and when angry, he is Raavan) “Uttar Pradesh ki raajneeti me koi khas nahi hota, jo jaan deta hai wahi khaas hota hai.” (In the politics of Uttar Pradesh, no- body is a favourite. The one who can give his life for you is the favourite.) With all the pluses in the movie however, the songs in the movie are disappointing. Sajid-Wajid have provided a good background score with a true Hollywood western style mouth organ playing at the pauses and the intense parts of the movie. But, the songs are badly placed. ‘Dont touch me’ and ‘Tamanche pe disco’ make you think why the director needed to put these tracks at all when he could have easily done without them. Dhulia’s biggest mass entertainer venture yet, ‘Bullett Raja’ is not your usual gravity defying stunt filled motion picture that asks you to leave your brains behind. The twists and turns in the plot keep you rooted to the seats for the entire movie. They might be somewhat predictable but are not stretched and don’t underestimate the intelligence of the viewer. The movie is a must watch for anyone who loves hard core action. It is not as intense as Dhulia’s previous ventures were, but ‘Bullett Raja’ will surely not let you down. (AU NEWS NETWORK) Kareena Kapoor reinvented in 'Bombay Samurai' Being a GUESS girl is big deal for me: Priyanka Chopra Actress Kareena Kapoor`s career seems to be heading to an exciting new level with Dev Benegal`s film ‘Bombay Samurai’. Post-marriage, she seemed to flounder in her choices with her halfhearted crusader`s role in Prakash Jha`s ‘Satyagraha’ and the totally inane social activist`s role in ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’. With ‘Bombay Samurai’, Kareena finally seems to have got her postmarriage formula right. According to sources, the film is "a crazy zany rollicking roller coaster ride with amazing twists and turns. There are seven to eight pivotal characters. But Kareena and Farhan (Akhtar) preside over the show". "They play a couple like no other seen before in our films. They are wacky and unpredictable. The two actors will have a ball playing their outgoing zestful characters," the source added. Both Kareena and Farhan were keen to work with one another. Says Farhan: "I`ve seen Kareena`s work. She is consistently excellent. I was keen to work with her. Dev`s film gives us a chance to try something different." Kareena expressed the highest admiration for Farhan: "I admire Farhan for being multi-talented. Priyanka Chopra is the first Bollywood actress to become the face of global fashion brand GUESS, and the actress considers it a big deal. "Being a GUESS girl for me is a really big deal because the most iconic beautiful women have been part of these campaigns. It`s one of the most iconic brands in the world," the 31-year-old said here Friday at a GUESS store where she was unveiled as the new GUESS girl. "When I went to New York this time, to pick up the magazines and saw Julia Roberts in the front and myself on the back, I was like `woah`," she added. International singer Bryan Adams shot Priyanka for the campaign and she reveals "When they first told me that Bryan was shooting it, I thought there must be some other person by the same name." "I couldn`t think that somebody is so talented to be a singer and a photographer. But then I found out that he has done a lot of campaigns for GUESS. They showed me the pictures of one of their most recent campaigns. And Bryan knew of me and I knew of Bryan. He comes to India so often that he is now half Indian," Priyanka said. Priyanka, who went international with her singing talent by launching her first single ‘In my city’, had released her second single ‘Exotic’ a few months back. She is now working on her third song. On the Bollywood front, she will soon be seen in Yash Raj Films` new project ‘Gunday’ with Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. (AU News network)

  7. 7. Monday, 02th to 8th Dec 2013 INDIA LOCAL PAGE 7 26 reasons why CBI court sentenced Talwars in Aarushi case Ghaziabad (AU NEWS NETWORK) : Of course there is no direct evidence but CBI has placed a "clinching wealth of circumstances" from which the guilt of Rajesh Talwar and his wife Nupur has been made out for murdering their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, Judge Shyam Lal said while outlining 26 reasons for sentencing the couple to rigorous life imprisonment. "From the evidence as tendered by the prosecution in form of oral and documentary evidence this court reaches to the irresistible and impeccable conclusion that only the accused persons are responsible for committing this ghastly crime as the following circumstances unerringly point towards the hypothesis of guilt of the accused," the 210-page order said, while pointing out 26 circumstances leading to the conviction. 1. That irrefragably on the fateful night of May 15 and 16, 2008 both the accused were last seen with both the deceased in Flat No. L-32, Jalvayu Vihar at about 9.30 pm by Umesh Sharma, the driver of Rajesh Talwar; 2. That on the morning of May 16, 2008 at about 6.00 A.M. Aarushi was found murdered in her bed-room which was adjacent to the bedroom of the accused and there was only partition wall between two bed-rooms; 3. That the dead body of the servant Hemraj was found lying in the pool of blood on the terrace of flat no. L-32, Jalvayu Vihar on May 17, 2008 and the door of terrace was found locked from inside; 4. That there is a close proximity between the point of time when both the accused and the deceased persons were last seen together alive and the deceased were murdered in the intervening night of May 15 and 16, 2008 and as such the time is so small that possibility of any other person(s) other than the accused being the authors of the crime becomes impossible; 5. That the door of Aarushi's bed-room was fitted with automatic click-shut lock. Mahesh Kumar Mishra, the then S.P. (City), NOIDA has deposed that when he talked to Rajesh Talwar on May 16, 2008 in the morning, he had told him that in the preceding night at about 11.30 P.M. He had gone to sleep with the key after locking the door of Aarushi's bed-room from outside. Both the accused have admitted that door of Aarushi's bed-room was having automaticclickshut lock like that of a hotel, which could not be opened from outside without key but could be opened from inside without key. No explanation has been offered by the accused as to how the lock of Aarushi's room was opened and by whom. 6. That the internet remained active in the night of the gory incident suggesting that at least one of the accused remained awake; 7. That there is nothing to show that an outsider(s) came inside the house in the said night after 9.30 P.M.; 8. That there was no disruption in the supply of electricity in that night; 9. That no person was seen loitering near the flats in suspicious circumstances during that night; 10. That there is no evidence of forcible entry of any outsider(s) in the flat in the night of occurrence; 11. That there is no evidence of any larcenous act in the flat; 12. That in the morning of May 16, 2008 when the maid came to the flat for the purpose of cleaning and mopping, a false pretext was made by Nupur Talwar that door might have been locked from outside by the servant Hemraj although it was not locked or latched from outside; 13. That the house maid Bharti Mandal has nowhere stated that when she came inside the flat both the accused were found weeping; 14. That from the testimony of Bharti Mandal it is manifestly clear that when she reached the flat and talked to Nupur Talwar then at that time she had not complained about the murder of her daughter and rather she told the maid deliberately that Hemraj might have gone to fetch milk from Mother dairy after locking the wooden door from outside. This lack of spontaneity is relevant under section 8 of the Evidence Act; 15. That the clothes of both the accused were not found soaked with blood. It is highly unnatural that parents of deceased Aarushi will not cling to Kanchi seers acquitted in Sankararaman case The Kanchi Sankaracharyas, Jayendra Saraswathi and Vijayendra Saraswathi, come out of the Puducherry Sessions Court, which freed them in the Sankararaman murder case, on Wednesday. (AU News network) :The Kanchi Sankaracharya, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi, and the junior Acharya, Sri Vijayendra Saraswathi, were acquitted by a Sessions Court here on Wednesday in the Sankararaman murder case, bringing an eight-year trial to a close. The court also acquitted 22 other accused, including one who had died during the trial. In the nearly 250-page judgment, Principal District Sessions Judge C.S. Murugan said the September 3, 2004 murder of A. Sankararaman, manager of the Sri Varadarajaperumal temple at Kancheepuram, had not been proved because more than 20 prosecution witnesses turned hostile. Further, the witnesses who identified the accused in a parade failed to do so before the court. The court also referred to a Supreme Court observation - in the order granting bail to Sri Jayendra Saraswathi - that Prem Kumar, then Superintendent of Police, Kancheepuram (since deceased), had taken an undue interest and active participation in the investigation, beyond what was required under the law. This was proved by witnesses. What with his intervention, a fair and proper probe was not done by the Chief Investigating Officer. The accused included N. Sundaresan, who was manager of the Sankara Mutt; the junior pontiff's brother M.K. Raghu; and K.G. Krishnasamy alias Appu. The trial was shifted to Puducherry from Tamil Nadu in 2005. and hug her on seeing her murdered; 16. That no outsider(s) will dare to take Hemraj to the terrace in severely injured condition and thereafter search out a lock to be placed in the door of the terrace; 17. That it is not possible that an outsider(s) after committing the murders will muster courage to take Scotch whisky knowing that the parents of the deceased Aarushi are in the nearby room and his top priority will be to run away from the crime scene immediately. 18. That no outsider(s) will bother to take the body of Hemraj to the terrace. Moreover, a single person cannot take the body to the terrace; 19. That the door of the terrace was never locked prior to the occurrence but it was found locked in the morning of May 16, 2008 and the accused did not give the key of the lock to the police despite being asked to give the same; 20. That the accused have taken plea in the statements under section 313 Cr.P.C. That about 8-10 days before the occurrence painting of cluster had started and the navvies used to take water from water tank placed on the terrace of the flat and then Hemraj had started locking the door of the terrace and the key of that lock remained with him. If it was so then it was not easily possible for an outsider to find out the key of the lock of terrace door; 21. That if an outsider(s) may have committed the crime in question after locking the door of terrace and had gone out of the flat then the outer most mesh door or middle mesh door must have been found latched from outside; 22. That the motive of commission of the crime has been established; 23. That it is not possible that after commission of the crime an outsider(s) will dress-up the crime scene; 24. That golf-club no.5 was thrown in the loft after commission of the crime and the same was produced after many months by the accused Rajesh Talwar; 25. That pattern of head and neck injuries of both the accused persons are almost similar in nature and can be caused by golf-club and scalpel respectively; 26.That the accused Rajesh Talwar was a member of the GolfClub NOIDA and golfclubs were produced by him before the CBI and scalpel is used by the dentists and both the accused are dentists by profession; "The manner in which the murders were committed is not the handiwork of single accused and rather the murders were committed and evidence destroyed by both the accused in furtherance of their common intention which is apparent from the facts and circumstances" mentioned, the judge said.

Right-wing extremists had no hand in Dabholkar's murder: Police Mumbai (AU News network) : Pune Police on Friday told the Bombay High Court that there was no evidence suggesting involvement of right-wing extremists in the killing of antisuperstition activist Narendra Dabholkar. Dabholkar, who spearheaded the antisuperstition movement in Maharashtra, was shot dead on August 20 in Pune; the police are as yet clueless about identity of the culprits. A public interest litigation filed by former journalist Ketan Tirodkar has sought a probe by National Investigating Agency, alleging that Hindu right wing activists were involved. A reply by police today said that Dabholkar was not known to be facing any threat, so there was no question of police preparing any threat perception report (prior to the murder) and monitoring his activities, etc. More importantly, the contention that it was the handiwork of right wing extremists was based only on presumptions or petitioner's own imagination which is not supported by any factual evidence, said Rajendra Bhamare, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Pune Crime Branch, in the affidavit filed before the court. Police also handed over to the court two reports on investigation conducted so far in sealed covers to the division bench headed by Justice P V Hardas.

Dissidence won't be brooked, says Uddhav; Joshi apologises Mumbai: Showing that he was in full control of the party, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray on Friday said that dissidents were free to leave; while senior party leader Manohar Joshi, who had criticised his leadership style recently, apologised. "Those who don't like my leadership, they are free to join other parties. The doors are open. I will not ask them to stay," Uddhav said, talking to reporters after a meeting of Sena leaders which was attended by Joshi and Mohan Rawale, another leader who took potshots at Uddhav recently. Uddhav, who was anointed president of the party after the death of his father, Bal Thackeray, also expressed confidence that he would "fly the (Sena's) saffron flag atop the state Legislature on the strength of loyal cadres". "I met the party president today and made it PAGE 8 clear...Uddhav Thackeray's leadership is strong. If my statements have unwittingly disrespected the party president, I publicly apologise for the same as party's discipline requires it, and hope that the issue would now close finally," Joshi said in a statement this evening. Joshi, former Speaker of Lok Sabha and former Maharashtra Chief Minister, had publicly criticised Uddhav last month. He was later booed out by party workers from the dais during the party's annual Dusshera rally.
